just a few months. .
if you're thinking about juice, think about reinforcing first. do it once do it right.
what ride you juicing?

Damn, and i thought mine was bad. Nice work with the repair :thumbsup:

Yeah, I'll be working on a new one when I get it off. But being a sub-frame (not a full frame, only goes to after the front doors) it still wont be as strong as a full frame.

Good thing with that is its a common car to juice. All the info is already out there. With mine being an Aussie car, its never been done before. . Its trial and error.. Cutting springs, cylinder clearance, weak points, etc
